We’re incredibly proud and happy to present a new work for Nuart in Aberdeen from Australian artist Vexta.
Based between New York and Mexico, Vexta reached out through a mutual friend in Melbourne with news that she was to be in Scotland for a commission and did we also perhaps have a wall. We’d met in Brooklyn a few years previously and I’d always been keen to work with her. There simply aren’t enough opportunities to work with female street artists and Vexta has an immediately recognisable style and technique that makes her ideal for a project like this. Mo – the owner of The Tunnels, had taken great time and expense to prepare a wall for us for Nuart in April, but due to various reasons, we were unable to tackle it. But good things come to those who wait, and nothing could be more suited to this site than a colourful Vexta piece. Mo has even fiited bespoke coloured lights for the piece which lifts it to another level. Unfortunately we were unable to be in town ourselves, but Mary Butterworth and Jon Reid, honorary Nuart Family members and owners of the Ke:Kun Studio space in Rosemount stepped in to aid the production.
